Teaching Resources

Are you teaching labour history?

The Canadian Committee on Labour History has a strong interest in sharing information and resources relating to the teaching of labour and working-class history.

We welcome course syllabi and other resources relating to labour history teaching. Please send materials in PDF format to our Chair (ja.thiessen@uwinnipeg.ca) and we will endeavour to include on this webpage. Also, feel free to share this page with colleagues.

Thank you!
